Thursday night’s series finale between the Mets and the Braves was postponed by rain after they had played into the top of the fourth inning. The game will have to be restarted, and none of the stats will count. It will be made up at a later date, which has yet to be announced. This was the second postponement between the Mets and Braves already this year. The two teams already had their April 25 contest at Citi Field postponed to September 25.
The Mets will not alter their rotation as a result of the rain out. Rafael Montero will get the start Friday night, although there is also rain in the forecast in New York over the next few days. If Friday’s game gets rained out as well, the Mets will skip Montero in the rotation.
The Braves and Mets played two outs into the top of the fourth inning when the rains came. The Mets were winning 3-1 at that point. Jay Bruce had cracked a two-run homer, which would have been his 10th of the season, but that is now erased from the record books and does not count. Jose Reyes was at the plate with two outs and nobody on in the fourth inning when the umpires decided to cover the field.
